be a link in harry reid to what happened with sequestration. one of the things the sequester said cut back in training and maintenance. the men and women were training in hawthorn and with the sequester it's going to get cut with this kind of stuff. nick isn't buying any of it. the inference is there. the reid disavowing that. >> our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those killed. let's not forget one thing with harry reid, nothing that senator says or does -- everything he does has a political calculation. i lived with that in nevada and that's the way he does business, talk about the fallen marines and dovetail it into a statement of the impact of the sequestration and distance himself and put out staff releasing. it's despicable. >> neil: we asked for a statement out of reid's office. quoting, the idea the tragedy has anything to do with the sequester is absurd and unsob instantated. part of the remarks that caught my attention. these men and women were training at hawthorn and the sequester will cut back this stuff, implying in the strongest terms i would think that there w
daschle if harry reid needs to revisit the filibuster reform. >>> and yesterday it was the president. now democratic leadership looks like they may cave on social security. i'll ask the big congressional panel where they stand. >>> good to have you with us, folks, thanks for watching. people around the country are still buzzing about the man behind the 47% video who revealed his identity on this show last night. now, today the world is getting to know the real scott prody. he described himself on this program as a regular guy. he's got bills to pay, he struggles in the middle class like anybody else. he has a dream to go to law school and he's -- really, here's another thing about him that i think you should know. he's a bartender. this is interesting. bartenders are in the service and hospitality industry, they are also some of the best armchair psychologists you can find. some of the best people readers on the earth. they can tell if somebody's in a good mood, one of the nicest people you've ever met. you know huh it is, they interact with everyone. people confide in bartenders. they te
all over again." senate majority leader harry reid summed up neatly the next debate on the role of government when addressing tuesday's release of house republican paul ryan's budget. called the path to prosperity, as it was when he first unveiled it, wearing nearly the same suit and tie back in 2011, ryan's plan seeks to reduce taxes and cut government spending. "when they talk about a cut, they're talking about reducing the rate of growth. and that's all ryan's plan will do. i think it's too weak. i think it's not good enough." author of "the free market revolution," yaron brook's criticism of the ryan plan is one you may not have heard before. it is far more likely that you've already listened to a version of this attack from the left. "the ryan plan will shower more tax breaks on millionaires and tilt the playing field to the advantage of big corporate interests" ryan's plan would cut the top tax bracket from 39 to 25 percent and would reduce the corporate tax rate from 35 to 25 percent. it also seeks to slash spending on entitlements like medicare, medicaid and social secu
not a problem and harry reid said don't touch entitlements and nancy pelosi don't raise the medicare retirement age and we don't have a spending problem either, i put a lot of that together. >> right. my favorite little gift of the president was $100 billion in the budget and they don't say freely raising new revenues through taxes in this budget. it's about $1.5 trillion in new tax revenue on top of the $600 billion in higher taxes earlier this year. that is on top of the more than $1 trillion in obamacare taxes. >> neil: and that doesn't balance anything? >> this is blueprint for what the president wants and what all democrats want, that higher taxes, more taxes and they are going to spend until the bond market says, hold it. you can't spend. >> neil: what do you think? >> i just think it's fascinating you put a time stamp on this. like ten years, it's way out there in the future. ten years comes pretty quick. what is scary about this the media let them get away with it. obama sounds smart but when you strip down what he says, it's actually pretty stupid. there is rationality we can still set
be exactly the right decision to then send it back to harry reid and president obama and ask if harry reid and president obama are willing to try to shut the government down in order to insist that obama care be fully funded now, even though it could well push us into a recession. >> now, this is the keynote speaker. and still wanting to get rid of obama care. >> yeah, it would seem insane that ted cruz is fighting for the path. he is trying to bring back the mccarthy era in his general ramblings on capitol hill. that would seem crazy. if paul ryan, supposedly the most serious men in washington who all the belt take seriously, wasn't doing the same thing in his budget, trying to get rid of the affordable health care act, which is signed off on. they are stuck in the past, not able to accept the results of the last election. you know who would love it if they tried to shut the government down? democrats. they are digging this party's grave and i don't think they even know it. >> we'll have to leave it there. joy reid and dana milbank, thank you both for your time. >>> it's a historic day at
-- >> you know, harry reid a accused the sequester of killing the eight marines. this terrible the exercise, reid of all people should want to save money in the pentagon in order to put more money back in training which i may add that the marine corp denied, but the point is, you are up his alley, why is he not behind you on this? >> i agree, if we cannot cut something like that, how do we address the $17 trillion in debt. this is why the american people get so frustrated with washington, we continue to spend their taxpayer dollars on, we have spent $3 billion on this program, we will never gaet result that the troops can use and members of both parties said it's wasteful, it would have passed if i could have gotten a vote for it. >> i have a bit of time. is it possible? i know the obama charm offensive, i hope you are too. >> if we are not talking to each other, we will never do anything. >> senator, i'm interested in balancing the budget and in pro growth, corporate and business tax reform, can you tell me that that is going to be part of it? not just root canal without noracain, yes or n
a spending problem for the president to say there is really no great urgency to balancing the budget or harry reid saying there is no rush too deal with entitlements this year. but for house democrat to double down on spending stupid by pushing more stupid spending, well, you got to wonder. but this is true, they want more stimulus about $200 million more, who can blame them, clearly none of their leaders are trying to stop them or remotely discourage them. and members of pear are not block -- of their party are not exactly blocking them. i don't think their intention was to encourage this. they run for a immediate nicotine spending rush any time they can get it, they d got it,n them for pushing it, it on us if we allow it david walker said stimulus is not the solution, he is so sick of watching washington dance around this issue. he alone withlice rivlin, head vice chair making this video to sort of get the message to young and older americans alike, the can kicks back. but you know we're just, still kicking the can, what is going on. >> it would be nice if we had a presidential budget, the
ago they try to deal with the fiscal situation in this country. harry reid spoke moments ago. let's take a look at what he had to say. >> as things now stand we are in the midst as i indicated of a filibuster to even try to get on the bill. if we get on the bill tomorrow morning and there are 30 hours waiting around staring at each other, and i just alert everyone, we have our easter recess coming a week from friday, and we are not going to be able to do that. martha: gosh, right, listen to that. do they ever get anything done, they've been waiting for this budget from the senate for how many years and now we are being told they'll just be staring at each other for 30 hours, says harry reid. we'll keep an eye on it. that is the doings on capitol hill. bill: house republicans unveiling their plan. congressman paul ryan argues his idea will balance the budget and pay down our debt without raising taxes. his plan would balance the budget he says within ten years, by 2023 cutting spending by $4.6 trillion with no tax increase. the plan would also p repeal obama care. that is the law r
this year. but we sit here and let the clock tick. one thing i can tell -- i know my good friend harry reid -- ware noweare not going to i cane budget can can down the road foo weeks. we will be here, whether it has to be saturday night, sunday, monday, and tuesday. we will be here. there's 50 hours fl w. we will have a nice, full, open debate. and then do our votes. it's a logical request. i don't think there's any good argument against it. i haven't thought of one yet. and i would urge my colleagues on the other side of the aisle, we would say, mr. leader, mr. republican leader, mr. republicans, let us debate that budget. tear down the wall of not debating. and let us show our budget, you show yours, and let the american people decide. i yield the floor. mrs. boxer: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from california. mrs. boxer: madam president, i want to add my words to those eloquently spoken by our budget committee chairman, patty murray, and one of our leaders here, the able senator from new york, senator schumer. we are waiting for hours and hours. i can only imagine
ontario leader harry reid offered a preview this morning. >> the democrat plan will cut wasteful spending and close tax loopholes that benefit the rich and invest what the economy needs to go really hard, to continue to build, to grow. it will increase a strong middle class. >> reporter: democratic aides said the plan would cut deficits by about 1.8 trillion dollars over ten years. half through tax revenues and half from spending cuts. but senate republican leader mitch mcconnell said he has low expectations. >> call me a skeptic but there's little chance the budget my senate democratic friends put forward will balance today, ten years from today or ever. i doubt it will contain much in the way of spending reform either. >> reporter: amid the back-and-forth, president obama began a series of four trips to capitol hill this week starting today with a meeting with senate democrats. he came and went without comment, but he'll be back tomorrow to meet with house republicans on thursday he confers with senate republica and house democrats. >> brown: we explore further the politics and the poli
to jack johnson. senator harry reid who hustled his way around nevada boxing rings before going to law school and getting into politics, joined with senator john mccain, massachusetts senator mo count, and peter king to introduce a resolution to pardon jack johnson. jack johnson was a legendary competitor that defined an era of american boxing and raised the war for all american athletics, said senator reid. his memory was unjustly tarnished, and it is time to recast his legacy. senator john mccain said we can never completely right the wrong perpetrated against jack johnson during his lifetime, but this pardon is a small, meaningful step toward acknowledging his mistreatment before the law and celebrating his legacy of athletic greatness and historical significance. senator cowan said jack johnson was one of the great african-american athletes, his skill and perseverance to get back up every time he was knocked down made him a champion in the eyes of the sports world and for those that like him pursued their dreams despite racial in tolerance. jack king said he is a trail blazer and l
universal background checks. harry reid is going to have to cobble together something. something meaningful that he can pass and move on to this house so we can get some bills signed. i really doubt the bill in its pure form as dianne feinstein has proposed it will see the light of day. >> right. all the so-called wise men and women of washington say senator feinstein's bill, as you say, has no chance of passing the full senate, but every day you and i see the incredible toll that this is taking. just this week, we saw the death of a 6-year-old little -- 6-month-old little baby girl called jonalah watkins of chicago. she was shot five times while her father was changing her diaper in the front seat of the minivan. the father was also shot. incredible, the mother had been shot, herself, once, while she was pregnant. what are we supposed to do about this? are we supposed to just walk away from some kind of meaningful legislation, when babies as young as 6 months old are murdered while their diapers are being changed? >> you know, martin, this is probably the most unspeakable tragedy we can th
yesterday with the new york times. all eyes on the senate and harry reid. that's the story this morning from roll call. with the senate judiciary committee now completing its work on a for your gun meters, the majority leader must now determine his strategy for how the chamber will move forward to in response to last year's school shooting. every week yesterday told reporters that he conferred with the chairman of the senate judiciary committee and he said "the and i will sit down to find out what has been reported out of the committee and what we need to do to put together as a base bill to start legislating on the senate floor." details available on roll call. callsl take your phone and you can share your thoughts on our facebook page and you can send us a tweet. bill is joining us from rhode island, independent line. good morning. are you with us? george in florida, republican, good morning. i don't think any campaign should be budgeted. the country, a good majority have already chosen to vote for a welfare check. the democrats and socialists have bought these people's votes. romney had t
when i say thank god for harry reid stopped busch's plan to privatize social security. so you wanted to turn her grandmother postretirement to lehman brothers, bear stearns? that is the people who were in charge. social security has been around for 75 years and has never missed a check. thank god for social security. as for -- as for "obamacare," call your mother, father, ask them if they like being on medicare. they love it. yes. and yet medicare only has 5000 employees. private insurance has hundreds of thousands of employees. government, more efficient and health insurance. more effective, lower overhead, better outcomes, lower prices. the only change i want to make is the eligibility age to birth. let's all get on medicare then we will have a real system. >> i will not answer that, but i would love to all on. have you been to the dmv lately? yes. house of service. >> when secretary of state hillard erie @ clinton appeared for the senate hearing on and got as they come here is what she said about the cause of the riot -- here is what she said.

lack of majority in the senate which is led by the philosopher harry reid. but they maintained by a large strengthen the house of representatives, losing only about eight seats. and a position of state legislatures were very strong. that position that they built up in 2010, they lost legislatures in maine and minnesota, but by and large can't legislatures that they one in 2010, and had the kind of advantage that they haven't had in state legislatures since the 1920s. so we are 25 states that have governors in both houses of legislature, controlled by republicans. they are not just small states. and 53% of the nation's population versus -- i believe it is 13 states with democratic governors or legislatures, 21% of the nation's population. so let me just leave you with a final number out of the exit poll. the electorate that reelected obama when asked whether government should do more to solve problems or whether government is doing to me things better left to businesses and individuals, 52% government is doing too many things. 43% government should do more. ..

. yesterday, senator majority leader harry reid had a debate on the floor and it is limited on this c.r. if the full 06 hours are taken up we'll see a vote on thursday. senate democrats want to move to their budget. the first senate budget on the oor in four years offered by patti murray and that budget is open to unlimited amendments, basically. once they start on that there could be 100 or more amendments and now they are talking about weekend votes. ut harry reid has not left for easter or passover recess before completing that. basically, the 60 hows of post closure debate time could be mited if they can get an unanimous consent but the senator from kansas blocked it because he wants an amendment on the federal aviation administration budget to allow them to have more money to stop the furloughs of the air traffic controllers. this has hit his state really heard and they are not giving him that vote so far. it is a slippery slope idea. they give him his vote they would have a flood gate opened. at one point there is 90 amendments to the c.r. and they are trying to avoid the situat
an hour. harry reid gave him an opportunity to leave at the appointed hour. he stayed another half an hour after that. so he clearly wanted to get engaged. he was very complementary of the ability to start moving legislation on gun safety on dealing with immigration reform eight senators are working on and that we enacted the vial lens against women act. he did point out that we have made some progress and progress is being made on our agenda and probably prior to issues but i think most of the discussion was around the budget problems and the fact that we are in sequestration i think we would rather see a more balanced way of dealing with the budget problems >> bill: we saw the paul ryan bucket which is a copy of what he has done in the past i am sure it will be dead on arrival. today, senate patty mer reis release the senate version of the budget. what can you tell us about it, senator? how does it differ from the ryan budget? >> the ryan budget is a lot of smoke and mirrors. he claims they are going to get certain reductions in spending but doesn't g
year. senator harry reid, the democratic majority leader, has come to the floor expressing some frustration. he wanted to move on this continuing resolution this week, as early as yesterday, giving members an opportunity to offer amendments. several members stepped forward and were prepared to do so, but they were stopped. there was a hold. and now, as i understand from the senator from oklahoma, and i believe my friend from arizona may echo his remarks, they're prepared to not stand in the way of any amendments, if members wish to offer, they can, and i hope they will. let me say a few words -- mr. mccain: since my friend is on that subject, could i -- mr. durbin: i ask permission to engage in dialogue with my friend, the senator from arizona. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. mccain: you'd say to my friend from illinois, there is no further objection. the senator from oklahoma and i have reviewed the bill and we discussed yesterday about its length and our obligations to -- i promise my friend from illinois, i won't rehash that discussion we had. but we have no obj
: they're kind of laughing at the budget. it is pile on the budget munster day. senator harry reid. >> he has held out to be this guy who understands things so well. what he understands is nothing. >> stephanie: representative chris van hollen. >> it is a question of whether you take a balanced approach which is what we proposed or you take this lopsided uncompromising approach which is what we're seeing in the house republican budget. >> stephanie: richard in chicago. you're on "the stephanie miller show." hi richard. >> caller: hello. i voted for jan schakowsky, too. >> stephanie: yea. >> caller: the stuff about guns in schools and they haven't proposed arming the kindergarteners yet. >> stephanie: they will. >> caller: surprised they've overlooked it. you can't walk into the nra headquarters with a gun i'll bet ya. you can't go into courts or congress. it is okay for the common people to have all of the guns running. you can't walk into a gunshop with a gun. >> stephanie: yeah. >> caller: because they think you're robbing them. some, you can't have more than one bullet in a gun. what a
-span. the session is expected to continue late into the night. senate majority leader harry reid came to the floor to discuss that house republican plan. here's a look. >> mr. president, yesterday americans got their first look at this year's republican budget. turns out looks like last year's ryan republican budget and it wasn't the only one. i was not the only one that said, gee whiz, not again? here's the headline from "bloomberg news". quote, ryan budget replays republican hits, quote clothe. one "washington post" reporter compared the release of the not so new and certainly not improved ryan republican budget to the movie groundhog day where bill murray relives his least favorite holiday over and over and over. remember this is the third ryan republican budget. this is what "washington post" also wrote, quote. the unrepentant reprisal of the same fiscal vision that was decisively repute aided last fall is bound to attract notice, close quote. indeed this is the same budget plan we saw from congressman ryan last year and the year before that. even the name is the same. if anything, this new ve
. >> as we wait, the majority harry reid has announced the one not be any works on the senate tonight. the cr -- [indiscernible] >> today, the associated press wrote the president met separately with democrats to lock in $85 billion in spending cuts and avoid government shut down on march 27. the two parties a best budget in both houses. the story refer to the democrats' spending bill that the senate budget committee has the working on and a republican bill approved by the house budget committee last night. it is scheduled for the house floor next week. >> if we can take a seat, we need to find out where we are in terms of members. who are witnessing? senator sanders, how long? what's a few minutes? a peso i think we can begin. -- ok, so i think we can begin. are we missing any senators on your side? we are going to get started. before we begin voting, i need to address senator wicker, the proposed point of order that would prohibit unfunded mandates. when i opened today i informed members that consistent with past practice, my counsel has been reviewing all proposed amendments that does a co
, what harry reid said. we know it's true because we've been reporting on this show really since the gun debate reignited after newtown that it's not just because republicans oppose it. it's also because of democrats, particularly in the senate. in fact, if you look at, we have a set of compiled -- some faces and names of democratic senators. if you look there's about a dozen. these are senators who have either outright said, no way to assault weapons ban, or those who run from us in the hallway when we try to ask or somewhere in between. the reason is most of them come from states where they're the whole concept of gun rights runs very wide and very deep. it would be cultural heresy many of them think to ban any kind of gun and to vote for that. the senators here may support other gun control like background checks or limiting high capacity ammunition clips, even trafficking, and so the thinking and it really has been all along, is that if they put the assault weapons ban in this broad gun control package, then the whole thing will go down whereas if they take it out, and put it as an a
leader harry reid hopes to complete work on the government funding and then move on to the next fiscal year and get a resolution for 2014 approved by the end of the week before their upcoming spring recess. live coverage of the house over on our companion network, c-span, and the senate right here on c-span2. we'll be live with senator levin at 12:30, but until then here's a conversation with grover norquist. he's the president of americans for tax reform, and he met with us on this morning's "washington journal." >> host: and welcome back to the "washington journal." grover norquist, president and founder of the group americans for tax reform, joins us now. first want to get your thoughts on the news of the day, this new growth and opportunities project report out from the republican national committee. the chairman of the republican national committee is having a press conference that's started just a few minutes ago at the national press club talking about changes that the party needs to make in terms of outreach, changes to how to nominate a presidential nominee. your take on what
overwhelmingly with republican support and opposition on our it was suggested to harry reid that that might be one way to get off the lack of action on making sure america pays its bills. the only reason i interrupt the gentlelady, i think it's important to understand your cut, cap, and balance passed before that suggestion was made included sequester as the fall back if we didn't reach the numbers. i think if it's the president's -- it's the president's via cut, cap, an balance which your side of the aisle passed and sent to the senate as presumably good policy. i thank the gentlelady for yielding, she was kind to do that. mrs. miller: i thank the gentleman for pointing out the sequencing of the sequester, the president's sequester, and i still say with the president's sequester, what's going to happen with this vote is a vivid nonstration of who is actually committed to doing more with less. my colleague, the gentleman, the minority whip, had also given a sort of historical lesson of various things under, in his observation of the way things had gone earlier on and i would point something
seniors and future generations. while in the senate harry reid and patty murray are considering a budget that never balances. it increases taxes by $1 trillion and let's medicare and social security race towards bankruptcy. and it turns medicare into a program that rations benefits to seniors. make no mistake, washington is approaching $17 trillion of debt and more than 12 million americans are unable to find work. the decisions we make will either sink us deeper into debt or put us on a path that encourages job creation and restores the belief that if we work hard and make tough choices, our kids will inherit a stronger country. mr. speaker, the choice is clear. if hoosier families balanced their budgets, washington doesn't have an excuse. it's time the president and the senate offer real solutions for hardworking hoosier families. i commend chairman ryan and the house budget committee for their hard work and i urge my colleagues to support the resolution. i yield back. the chair: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman from maryland. mr. van hollen: thank you, mr. chairman. i n
